Hannibal: Season 3 Premiere Review


Note: Full spoilers for the Hannibal: Season 3 premiere follow.

First of all, a moment to pause and rejoice… Hannibal is back!

The Season 3 premiere was not a “hit the ground running” one. It didn’t pick up moments after the finale, with ambulances rushing to the grisly scene in Hannibal’s house. No, Bryan Fuller instead took the intriguing approach of focusing entirely on Hannibal and Bedelia’s new life abroad – first in Paris, then in Florence.

“I’ve killed hardly anyone during our residence” Hannibal remarked, in one of the show’s darkly humorous moments – and one that also was notable for how casual Hannibal is about his true nature with Bedelia, who truly knows everything about what he’s doing, yet is living with him. Why? That’s a continued question. I loved her talking about how she believes she is in control of her actions – both because we, as the audience — especially seeing how Hannibal had so completely subverted Miriam last year — would be asking the same thing and because it makes things even more complicated. Even Bedelia herself doesn’t quite seem to know why she is there. Begging the question of whether she just doesn’t want to admit to a true darkness within her.

Poll: What’s the Best Comic Book TV Show?

Last September, we polled you guys and gals about your favorite RETURNING comic book TV show going into the new TV season. Which, at that time, only consisted of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Arrow, and The Walking Dead. Needless to say that things have definitely gotten more crowded on the comic book TV series front since then.

Shows like Gotham, Marvel’s Agent Carter, The Flash, iZombie, Marvel’s Daredevil, Constantine, and Powers hadn’t hit the scene yet, turning primetime TV schedules and streaming models into a superhero Shangri-La. So now we have more to play with.

Trank: Why I Quit Star Wars

When Fantastic Four and Chronicle director Josh Trank dropped out of helming the second Star Wars Anthology film last month, rumors immediately began to circulate regarding why he left the project. Unconfirmed chatter indicated that the FF reboot had been a troubled production which worried Simon Kinberg, who was producing both the FF and Star Wars films, and that this had led to Trank’s being fired by Lucasfilm. But now both Trank and Kinberg have come out to talk about the director’s departure from Star Wars in an attempt to set the record straight.

In an interview with Hero Complex to promote this summer’s Fantastic Four, Trank denied the reports of trouble on that film, saying that he has been shocked by the reaction to his Star Wars departure. “People get so excited to raise their pitchforks,” he said.

The Nightmare Review

It certainly isn’t required of a documentary to bring on experts to discuss a problem. Sometimes though having an outside expert can be exceptionally beneficial.

Director Rodney Ascher’s new documentary, The Nightmare, offers the stories of eight different people all of whom are affected by a medical condition known as sleep paralysis. Not one expert is ever brought in to talk about the problem, and after watching the movie, the audience will understand exactly how these eight sufferers feel, but maybe not have gained much insight into the condition itself.

A seemingly well documented and not uncommon issue (a press release for the film states 6.2% of the population suffer from it), sleep paralysis involves individuals not being able to move for brief periods as they enter or exit sleep. People, as the documentary does discuss, who suffer from sleep paralysis often have hallucinations and feel difficulty breathing. It is a condition which has to be terrifying. It definitely sounds terrifying, and the eight different people with the problem who discuss it in The Nightmare have clearly had a lot of trouble dealing with it.

Samsung ad Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6 wireless charging

In a pair of new television commercials, Samsung is back at what it does best: bashing Apple’s iPhone. Promoted under the tagline “six is greater than six,” the 30-second videos highlight three features of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge: wireless charging, a wider-angle lens on the selfie camera out the front and a curved screen which displays tidbits of information across the edges of Samsung phones.
